The PPI for January will be published at 11:30 on 28 February 2018 instead of 22 February as originally scheduled. The delay is a result of system difficulties experienced in shifting to the new PPI basket. The CMPI will be published at 12:00 on 28 February. The Import and export unit value indices will be released on 22 February as originally scheduled.

On 18 January 2018, Stats SA advised the public of an update to the product basket and weights of the PPI. A new set of construction material price indices will also be available. Further information on the changes is available on the Stats SA website (http://www.statssa.gov.za/?page_id=2528).

Stats SA apologises for any inconvenience resulting from the delay.
